I cloned my hard drive and added the clone to my system, how should my pin settings look? Here's what they are set at right now.

Main drive [ : % : : ]
slave drive [ : : % : ]

This is a very pretty illustration but it doesn't really tell anybody anything. The jumpers mean different things in different positions on different drives. Typically they govern which drive is master and which is slave. Most drives have a legend on them that tells you what the jumpers mean in each position.

Generally the drives would be jumpered as cable select. Since you had the drive in your hands, look for the legend. If no legend, then look for the model number and go to the disk manufacturers site and get the info on the drive.
